Welcome to Summer Reading, 2014!
As the last day of school marks the beginning of summer vacation, the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District is excited to kick off a district-wide elementary summer reading program. Summer reading provides a great way for children to learn new things, explore topics of interest, and feed their curiosity over the vacation months. Studies show summer reading helps maintain reading skills learned during the school year, increase vocabulary and reading fluency. It also helps develop a child’s background and general knowledge. We encourage your family’s participation in our program as well as the summer reading program at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library and the NYS Summer Reading at New York Libraries.
